This VW Airboat is for boat builders looking to build their own economical airboat!

Using Glen-L plans, along with our Rear Drive System,
will provide you with one of the least expensive airboats to
build, operate (fuel consumption) and maintain.

With the Rear Drive System, you can use either wood or composite props.

The Rear Drive utilizes the entire Stock VW cooling -
blower, alternator and shrouds.
You'll never have to woryy about a HOT engine.
